Digital Mural Project: San Francisco Print Collective

Sunday, October 31, 2004 - Thursday, January 27, 2005

Timed to coincide with the November 2, 2004 presidential election, this billboard by the San Francisco Print Collective brought forth the critical issues that were not being addressed by the two leading candidates.

CURATORIAL STATEMENT Inspired by the massive marches that took places on streets throughout tje U.S., the march represented in this billboard depicted the growing concern within our communities and working class with the absense of basic critical issues that were not being addressed by the two leading candidates and their campaign politics, such as living wages, housing, education and immigration. The San Francisco Print Collective is a group of artists whose aim is to increase public awareness and dialogue about local, national and international concerns by printing and pasting posters and large format banners and billboards throughout the city that are informative, memorable and thought provoking. They are interested in reclaiming public space for the use of substantive issues and to subvert the visual omnipresence of advertising. The primary venue for their work is on the streets of San Francisco.
